AS RESIDENT ALIENS: CHRISTIAN PEACEMAKER TEAMS IN THE WEST BANK, 1995-2005 - by CPTer Kathleen Kern is available from CPT for a suggested donation of $35. “A gripping narrative of CPT’s attempts to transform prayer into practice as they stand with both Palestinians and Israelis in their struggles for peace.  A significant addition to understanding both the crisis in the Middle-East and the need for international accompaniment” - Ramzi Kysia  “When every person who opens this book makes an effort to get it into the hands of those perpetrating this mess, who fund and defend it, we’ll be a lot closer to peace.” - Rabbi Jeremy Milgrom
